Saturday was our granite shopping trip. Jerry
did a great job making the process of selection perfectly smooth and he set a great pace. We had already spent several hours browsing through the thousands of slabs (hundreds of different types of granite). We had already decided to use two granites; one for the island and another for the perimeter surfaces. I was predisposed to a black granite with speckles for the perimeter. The trick was to find a complimentary, coordinating island piece.
We went armed with the charcoal door matching the island, a wood sample matching the perimeter cabinets and a selection of 5 floor tiles. We were able to reduce our choices down to 4. Then we wandered outside for a bunch more. We stumbled upon this grayish, redish, little brown, some black and copper speckled slab with a fairly wide vein running through it. A daring vein. A statement vein.
I wish I had taken a picture, but alas, I didn’t.
